Nomakenolife March Box

Hey everybody! I had a bit of free time today so I decided to do another subscription upload today. The Nomakenolife box comes from Japan. For $30 a month, you get six or seven FULL SIZE (!) beauty items! A fun little tidbit: I’m obsessed with Asian skincare and beauty so this was perfect for me. The theme of the box this month was sakura. Here’s a shot of the box:

Look at all the amazing Japanese items!

Look at all this stuff! I’m going to give a decent description of everything since all the writing is in Japanese 🙂

Okay so the first item is the wayumeguri sakura bath salt:

These bath salts smell like cherry blossoms and has mineral oils and mineral salts to moisturize your skin.

Next is the Ichikami Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner travel set:

The packaging is so cute! 🙂 but this is a best selling hair care line in Japan which makes this even more awesome. This is silicone and sulfate free and smells like apricots and cherry blossoms. Yum.

I’m trying to add links for purchasing on the more hard to find items so you can try them also!

The third item is the Sakura Harenohi hand care gift pack:

The bow! So cute! Kyaaaaa~ this comes with a hand cream and a hand soap. Both of these products use royal jelly and collagen to protect your hands and skin from dryness and cracking.

This item is another cute one! I can’t handle how awesome this stuff makes me feel! I get all warm and fuzzy haha. These are Sakura hand towels and cleaning cloths.

FYI, the hand towel is on the left and the cleaning cloth is on the right. These are super portable and ready to use for anything! Removing dirt, cleaning glasses and cleaning off plastic. Practical!

Next we have Gensen Labo Hydrating Sea Kelp Toner!

Okay so this toner hydrates by using gagome kelp, straight outta Hokkaido! Gagome kelp has a thicker consistency and helps nourish the skin and restores elasticity. This toner is also alcohol free, scent free, and gentle enough for sensitive skin! Use it morning and night 🙂 to use it: clean your face thoroughly to remove makeup/buildup. Use warm water to open your pores. Using either your hand or a cotton pad, gently pat the toner on your face.

The last two items are two lip packs by Choosy. The gold pearl pack and the peach pack.

These lip packs are scented! Both of these packs have Vitamin-E, collagen, hyaluronic acid to make your skin super soft. How to use: clean thoroughly and remove all dirt, makeup and oils. Place product on your lips and wait five to thirty minutes for hydration. After that, gently remove from lips. I thought it was funny because on the back of the packages it says you can use them for dry nipples as well!
See?? Fix yo’ nips!

Try some for yourself! Click on the picture to buy a three pack!

Thats’s pretty much it for this box! I hope you enjoyed looking at fun products from Japan! Xoxo!

Sephora Play! (March)

Hey everybody! I finally got everything figured out with my website as far as the mapping and technical aspects go. I received this box yesterday but I was feeling quite like Jack Torrance because I’ve been snowed in my house for three days so for my sanity I took some time outside. Anywhooo, back to the Sephora Play! Box.

This month was all about shine. Products from Benefit, Glamglow, Josie Maran, Bobbi Brown, Living Proof, and Chloé.

This was the bag and insert from this month.

Here’s a photo dump of all the products that came in this month!

A Bobbi Brown cream shadow stick in shade ‘Golden Pink’
Benefit Cosmetics ‘Watt’s Up!’ Cream to powder highlighter
Living Proof’s full dry volume blast. This smells amazing!
Josie Maran’s Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm. Please excuse my nails. Blech.
Glamglow’s GLOWSTARTER Mega Illuminating Moisturizer
Perfume of the month: Chloé’s ‘Fleur de Parfum’
Here are some swatches of the products (from top to bottom: Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Glamglow, and Josie Maran)

Oddly enough, everything in this box works well and smells great!

Ipsy Bag (March!)

Hey! I’m so excited to review my glam bag this month! I don’t know if its just me but ipsy has really upped their game in the past few months! I’ve had this for about two years and I adore this subscription! Let’s get started with the cute bag this month.

Ipsy March Bag
I love how big this bag is this month! The pink is subtle and really screams spring 🙂

There were five items that I have this month to photo dump for you!

and most importantly, the bag came with this little card that says,

Never forget that we are all beautiful.

Winter Storm Stella = Cabin Fever.

Hey everybody, I seem to have lost my main domain for some reason (I have no clue what happened so I’m on a wordpress free account until they change it to premium.) So yeah. This storm was fun the first day but not being able to go anywhere kind of blows especially with a super cute and hyper five year old who decides to stop listening to you. The first day we made a tofurkey, took some snow pictures and I wore two of my new enamel pins that I got from beastwreck and monstersaregood. With that, I’m hoping tech support gets back to me soon and I hope you all stay safe and warm today 🙂
